Description nagashree 2005-11-11 06:29:11 UTC
Steps to reproduce:
1) Open a document that is sent as an attachment witht he mail
2) Click on File - Save as, it suggests a temporary folder. 

A user should NEVER be allowed to "save" to a (internal) temporary folder
as this one will disappear after closing the session, eventually leading to
data loss (and creating angry users as they do not understand what and why this

OO should suggest the default folder for documents.

Framework issue.

As long as your mailclient stores these files in temp folders OOo is opening
these files in temp. And an opened file will be always stored where it has been
opened at.

I second Nagashree on this issue. Emailing a document to work on it from home,
and losing subsequent edits because the document is saved to the temp folder is
a common mistake. OpenOffice should treat documents that are opened from the
temp folder as *read only*, and default to the home folder when 'Save' or 'Save
As...' is selected.
